Who are we?
Each year thousands of people visit Birds Hill Park, an incredible natural environment near Winnipeg that offers a broad range of recreational opportunities.
Incorporated in 2000, Friends of Birds Hill Park is a democratic non-profit, voluntary association of individuals committed to conserving the park’s natural environment.
Our vision is to be a thriving organization that collaborates with partners and Birds Hill Park management to educate the public about the park’s natural heritage and foster a healthy natural environment.
